by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Dodgers starting pitcher Dan Haren tossed the ball well yet again Thursday against the Phillies, but got little help as he settled for a no-decision in a 7-3 loss.

Haren had little trouble with the Phillies in this outing, as he ran into issues during just one inning. Unfortunately, that was enough, as the Phillies scored three times in the fifth, though only one run was charged to him in that frame.

Haren was charged with just the one earned run in six innings of work, while scattering seven hits and a pair of walks. He struck out a season-high seven, while throwing 71 of 106 pitches for strikes in the no-decision.

Haren is off to a terrific start with the Dodgers, with four quality starts in five trips to the mound. He is 3-0 with a 2.03 ERA entering his next start, set for Wednesday in Minnesota.

Kershaw will likely be evaluated after his start for Class A Rancho Cucamonga, which is expected to have a 65-pitch limit.
